Lovely Cherry Red Glass Rosary – Capped Paters – Italy

The vibrant red glass beads on this vintage Catholic rosary are the color of cherry Life Savers. Roughly faceted and highly polished, they really reflect the light and are quite captivating. The paters are double-capped with nicely ribbed end caps and separated by sections of silvered metal chain, all of which have a nice dark patina.

The shield-shaped center medal contains serene profiles of Jesus and Mary. A raised cuff travels the perimeter of the medal and bisects the lower portion, creating a square to house each portrait. The triangular section contains elegant cabbage roses that soften the linear attributes of the medal.

Similar styling is reflected on the 2-layer crucifix with its strong geometric design and raised cuff segmenting the arms of the cross. Again, roses adorn the points with a slender molded corpus at the center. The plain verso is stamped "Italy" and shows some devotional wear to the silvering.

Needless to say, the color makes this an energetic rosary that feels uplifting and purposeful. Perfectly suitable for daily prayer, it would also be fun gift that will inspire its recipient to prayer. Comes boxed and ready for gift-giving.
